Default PNY SD memory cards garbage?

Apparently so, it refuses to work with my brand new camera. The memory card is also new. I ran the HP Diags on the camera, so it'* not the camera. According to the search I ran on yahoo, PNY'* Flash cards are garbage. Anyone else have problems with them? I have owned all Sandisk products before and NEVER had a problem.

I've got sandisk or name brand Sony MS, CF, and SD. Nevery PNY. Because of their poor reviews.

Can you return it?

Yup, I can. I checked the reciept, totally returnable, I'm glad. I am going right to the memory card section and grabbing a Sandisk 512MB SD card.

I have a 512MB PNY flash drive that hasn't failed me yet. Had it for 3 years, got it real cheap at Wal-Mart.

Took back the crap PNY card, they asked if we wanted another, said NOPE! Bought a SanDisk Ultra II 1.0GB SD card on sale for 29.99. Works like a charm!
